The replica VM cannot be powered on. The following message appears:

Failed to start the virtual machine. 
Module DevicePowerOn power on failed. Could not set up "macAddress" for ethernet0. 
Invalid MAC address specified. [MAC_address] is not an allowed static Ethernet address. 
It conflicts with VMware reserved MACs.


NAKIVO Backup & Replication replicates a variety of VM properties, including the MAC address.

In some cases target ESXi host cannot power on the replica VM in case its MAC address is not within a standard VMware range.


The workaround is described in the VMware knowledge base.
